One of the things I really want to have in the first beta is
some sort of test suite; I expect that having it will help in shaking
out numerous bugs across different parsers and drivers.

The simplest test would be to have a little well-formed XML document,
and try parsing it via SAX; this would be as much of a test of the SAX
implementation as of the parser.  A more complete solution would be to
run through James Clark's XML test suite and verify the output, but I
don't think we can include the test suite in our distribution (it's
also fairly large).  

	Any thoughts on this?

	(Having finally completed some long-overdue revisions to my
Web page, it's back to XML for me...)

are dry and brittle. Within you now, lion and eagle abandon their battle for
dominance, and surrender to time and to the grave.
